Larissa Waters, a Senator from Australia, created history by breastfeeding her baby while addressing the house.
The issue of public breastfeeding has ignited a vehement social debate in many countries, with some questioning the appropriateness of the act and others supporting women’s free choice. On Thursday, an Australian MP created history by becoming the first to breastfeed her baby while giving a parliament speech.
Larissa Waters breastfed her three-month-old baby, Alia Joy, while speaking about black lung disease.
She later joked about it on Twitter, saying, “First time I’ve had to move a Senate motion while breastfeeding! And my partner in crime moved her own motion just before mine, bless her.”
